Themes: squared

Maintained by it's meDavid Bogner, Gareth J BarnardGareth J Barnard
The theme is generally based on squares. If you like squares, that is definately your first choice, if you do not like squares, you might consider it as well, because it looks really good ;-).

The idea of this theme is to put design in first place, and then see if it can be done technically. This is the first theme most of
the users do not recognize it was made for moodle wink. The authors even pretend that it is the most beautiful theme wink.

About the theme.
  • It uses a lot of squares: blocks are squared, some heading elements are squared and so on.
  • New icon set for moodle standard activities and plugins. If you want the source (vector), just contact
  • It is not yet responsive. If you would like it to have responsive, we are square enough to accept money to do that. Just write to
  • The frontpage slideshow is completely customizable concerning text and images. Changing animation style: you have to be a coder.
  • Your social icons appear as squares on the bottom of the theme
  • Blocks are collapsed per default
  • The theme uses the font Source Sans Pro from Adobe, which is optimised for web reading
  • There is a super dropdown custom menu. You can add course categories to the custom menu. After adding the category a dropdown menu will automatically be created. It displays all the links in a category depending on the rights of the user. In order to use the dropdown, just edit the general theme settings, that are located at: /admin/settings.php?section=themesettings. Here is an example configuration

    I installed the 2.7 version of the themein Moodle site 2.7.2 and it worked fine. Now I have to pass to a Moodle 3.0 new site. I installed version 2.9 of the theme and the categories squares do not appear. I removed it and installed version 2.7, but it is the same i can"t seeategories squares .Is it possible that some component is missingin the server ?

    Hi Irith,

    actually M3.0 is not yet supported. We are working on a responsive version of the theme. That will still last about a month until it will be released.

    Kind regards,

    to edit the slide show, just go to the theme settings.
    5 slides is the max number of slides you can use.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Peter,

    we are running a Alpha-Version for test purposes on But that won't be the final design yet. I estimate about 2 weeks to go in order to have a nearly stable release.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Esteban. That depends from which point are you starting. Do you have the design already, or does a designer have to work on the design first. Then it depends if you create a subtheme of a current theme and so on.
    This theme is available for Moodle 3.1, but we did not release it yet, due to some bugs. If you want to contribute, you are very welcome.

    @Сергей Афонин: there must have something gone wrong when you installed the theme. How did you install it?

    @Сергей Афонин: Additional: Are there any errors in the PHP error log please? What version of Moodle are you using?

    Additional, tested installation on a clean Moodle 3.7 install and could not replicate the CSS not being generated from the SCSS as indicated in the screen shot. Have you got some custom CSS etc. in a setting?
